Oryx presents its insider’s tips for places to visit in January. Try out some winter sports in Zell Am See-Kaprun, or enjoy the warmth, white-sand beaches, and sparkling waters of Cancun and Goa.


Cancun, Mexico

With a tropical climate, Cancun enjoys warm weather throughout the year. January falls in the dry season with temperatures of around 23°C and an average sea temperature of 27°C, ideal for snorkelling or scuba-diving the incredible coral reefs, lazing on the white-sand beaches, and playing golf on one of the scenic courses.


Zell Am See-Kaprun, Austria

As one of the most beautiful winter sports areas in Austria, Zell am See-Kaprun in Salzburg turns into a winter wonderland in January. Boasting 138km of ski slopes, visitors can explore the landscape while pursuing winter sports. Both the Schmittenhöhe and the Kitzsteinhorn offer diverse ski slopes in the midst of snowy mountain landscapes, and the Schmitten and Maiskogel are the perfect skiing location for families. Other winter activities include tobogganing, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and Nordic walking. Depending on the temperature, you can also skate on the frozen Lake Zell or at the ice rinks in Zell or in Kaprun.
